My Little Con Artist

You know those days when you just don't want to go to sleep and ice cream sounds so much better? Eli had one of those days last night. We put him to bed and didn't hear anything from him for about 30 minutes. After that amount of time has elapsed, you would think the kid had gone to bed.

He pops his little head out and stands there all demure and innocent. He says sweet little nothings and whispers so meekly.  What is he whispering as he points his finger gently towards the kitchen?

"Ice cream."

Here he is settling in to a delicious bowl of Mint Denali, carefully spooning out each bite, because he knows he is walking a tight rope.

 But as the ice cream starts to course through his veins, he feels more secure in his position on Dad's lap.

Mission accomplished!

Wow. When I was a kid I wouldn't have dared ask for ice cream. Water, however, Mum couldn't say no to...

Hi Kelly,

Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. I'm contacting you because I'm trying to get the word out about my new site:

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

I am contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that I could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

I would also appreciate if you could spread the word about Mommy Giggles to other moms too!

Hope you will get a “giggle” out of the site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews
